M266b Wove mould with leather roll deckle

Wove mould without conventional deckle but with a roll of leather attached around the edges of the mould. It is thought that this was an experiment in which the leather roll was intended to retain the fibre on the sheet but press flat during couching. Mould in very poor condition and the leather almost entirely perished.
